A Tabletop Tuesday and a few Thrifty Treasures.

Hi All!  It's going to be a beautiful week of weather here in the upper Midwest.  It's sunny this morning and chilly but were supposed to reach 60 degrees today and upper 60's and into the 70's by midweek!
YAHOO!  I am doing my happy dance!   This has been the first March since they started keeping records that we haven't had any snowfall.  To me, that's amazing! 

I found this little tea-pot last week for only .98 cents.  No lid, so I made it into a pin cushion.  I kind of like how it turned out.

I found Mr. Bunny at that same thrift store.  He was only 1.98 and he was already wearing the ribbon!

And my final thrifty find is this pretty white ironstone vase.  This one came to a whopping  $2.98!
I am pretty much loving this one!

I am also joining Marty, for Tabletop Tuesday.  Tulips and my newly made pin cushion give it a bright sunny look!  I am all for the bright and sunny right now.  And how's the weather in your neck of the woods?  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Hi Cindy, I love that white pitcher - what a deal. Also, love that adorable pitcher/pin cushion your made - very sassy! Linda

  2. Beautiful Spring post, Cindy.

    We are certainly enjoying the Spring like weather here in northeast MO.

  3. Oh Cindy, this is all so pretty. I love, love, love that birdhouse lamp. It is just precious and your gorgeous pin cushion and the tulips are just stunning. You really did find some of the best buys. The pitcher is wonderful. I know you will really enjoy that. We are in the 80's today. Rain for later this week. Ugh! Wish you were here. So glad it is warming up for you. Thanks a bunch for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

    How about that great weather coming our way? Yay!!


  7. Hi Cindy!

    It's raining right now, but later in the week it's supposed to get into the low 70's! I'm excited!

  13. I love all your bargains! And when you get tired of the teapot as a pin cushion it will make a sweet little vase!
    Your bunny is adorable, and the pitcher, what a find!
    We haven't had the good weather...rain for days...but maybe by Easter,,I hope!
    Don't want the Easter Bunny to get his hare wet..:)

  16. Adorable bunny!! Great price. You always find the best stuff.

  17. Hi Cindy, your tulips sure put a smile on my face. I looked for some the other day and they were fresh out. Guess everyone has the same idea.. bring a bit of spring inside. Your home certainly reflects Spring. I'm loving your ironstone tea pot and birdhouse lamp...you always manage to find some darling things..
    hugs ~lynne~

  18. Love your snazzy finds, Cindy! Very clever repurposing with the teapot. Neat! And I love all the other pieces, too, and those GORGEOUS yellow tulips. That paisley plate may just be found missing, too. My magpie eye was drawn to it like a moth to the flame! ;-)

    See you when I get back from my chore break...


    Sheila :-)

  19. Great Thrifty finds! I can't believe you got such a deal on that magnificent bunny! Your yellow tulips look so sunny! Great idea to use the lid-less teapot for a pin cushion - so cute!


  20. Hi Cindy, You are a great treasure hunter.. what good deals! I love the repurposed teapot to pincushion, adorable!

  21. Hi Cindy,
    Love the tulips, the teapot/pincushion and the entire table top. So pretty and perfect for your Spring weather. Weather in Florida has been really windy, some rain, and now cooler than normal. Across the state Fort Lauderdale had a huge tornando. Praying for friends there.
    Have a beautiful day and enjoy your warm weather.

  22. I love that Easter bunny! Looking for something just like it.

    Warm wishes

  23. How clever to use the lidless teapot for a pincushion! Those tulips are gorgeous -- I just love tulips and wish they'd grow in my area. It doesn't get cold enough for them to repeat, though.

  24. LOVE your great Easter touches. Good deals, too. I like the pin cushion, and iron stone pitcher. Lezlee

  25. What great thrifty finds! I love what you did with the teapot, that's so cute. I keep meaning to do the same with some teacups I have. Love the bunny!! What a great find for this time of year!


  26. Cindy, that little lamp is just too cute, and I love what you are doing with pin cushions! Your rabbit with the bow is adorable and what fabulous deals you got! Love your sunny vignette. laurie

  27. Beautiful yellow tulips! This is a neat tabletop vignette!

    Thank you for your comment on my cloches!


  28. I love your beautiful designs!!! Especially the white pitcher!!


I would love to hear from you. Come back and visit anytime. Warmest Wishes, Cindy
